Thats the only thing I dislike about my Predator is the seat, seems like it forces you to ride on the gas tank.This will soon be modified.

Hey got2b1st... how will you modify it? Is someone making an aftermarket seat with a different shape or something?

I just got them in, but haven't put them on yet. I've got some 22" rears for the heavy stuff, and that gearing should only gear the quad down moderately... which I wanted to do anyway.

I'm not sure what it will do with 20" paddles or my razr's, though. I may need to swap the 13 for the 14 if I run 20's. I'm hoping to put the new sprockets on this weekend to see what it's like. :)

I geared mine down to 13/39. I ride steep rocky trails, and that gearing is excellent. If you have wide open spaces to ride in, it's probably too low. But for tight woods, and rock climbing, I think it's the way to go. I spend alot less time searching for that perfect gear. Previously, I was shifting back and forth between first and second. It always seemed to be either too low or to high. I was also using first gear way more than I would like to. The new setup makes 2nd and third gears very usable. Sprocket Specialists has the sprockets, I've ordered a few from there, all with good luck. I have a 40 tooth brand new one, if anyone is interested.

pitman: I got the shrouds directly from PRM's website shop - http://www.prm-atv.com/. I see scott already answered your gearing question above, but I'll post about it as well after I get them put on the bike. I'm hoping to do it tomorrow. got2b1st: Thanks for the info, that sounds sweet. Love to see some pics after you get it done. :) meyerz: Thanks... that sounds like an easy solution. Do you still feel like you want to be sitting way up, but don't slide there... or does it completely fix the problem?

No Scooter your not the only one, I don't have any problem with the seat. I thought at first the seat/bars felt a little strange just sitting on it, but riding it feels great, no problem at all.
